Sear 917.271021 Riding Lawn Mower.

I have replaced the carburetor and fuel solenoid. After the mower starts there is gas coming out the muffler due to excessive gas being dumped into the intake. You can see when this begins to happen if you have the air filter off.

SOURCE: Poulan ride on lawn mower will not run by itself--if you pour gas into the intake it will run until the sm amt runs out

It could be your fuel shutoff solenoid is not working or is stuck from gum, varnish or rust in your carb bowl. The fuel shutoff solenoid is located on the bottom of your carburetor. To check it, have someone, or yourself if you can reach the ignition switch, turn the key to the on position and back off several times while you listen by the carb. You should hear a click each time. If not, the carb will have to be taken off and cleaned and checked. You will probably find water and/or rust in your bowl plugging up the main jet. Best to take it to a shop.

A lawn mower that gas comes out of the exhaust.


It sounds like the float in the carburetor is stuck in the open position.This will allow fuel to flow through the carb and out the muffler.

Backfires are caused by unburned fuel, after you shut off the mower, and you try to restart it, if you have any leaks, it will push any unburnt fuel towards the muffler, and that will ignite once it gets in a hot muffler. First try starting it at 1/4 to 1/2 throttle. I also suggest you try shutting down the motor at 1/4 to 1/2 throttle.

What this problem usually means is you need to rebuild your carburetor, with this poor quality ethanol fuel they force us to use these days, it will eat up your gaskets and rubber seals inside your carb.

What I found that helped me with my mower, was using non-ethanol gas. Its hard to find and is usually expensive, but that solved most of the problems I was having with my 10 year old craftsman mower, which has the 17.5 kohler motor.

After reading your question it sounded like the smoke was due to fuel leaking on the muffler and or excess fuel entering the combustion chamber. I would due the following diagnostic. In a quite area turn on the ignition switch. You should hear the metallic click of the fuel cutoff solinoid on the carburetor.

Bought this lawn mower.It was sitting for two years and now it won't start.


first things first:
1) make sure that the kill for the magneto/coil is breaking contact( it is on the side of the mower,follow the cable down from the red bar)
2) gas to carburetor
3) spark to plug/s
4) gas to cylinder/s

pull plug and try starting mower, observe spark plug for spark and fuel coming out of cylinder/s. if spark no gas, then check to see if it getting to the carburetor, if it is then it is the float and seat in the carburetor and will need to be cleaned/replaced/rebuilt. Or just simple pour gas into the carburetor and try starting if it starts then it is the fuel line, carburetor. Hope this helped Tim

Do you have a fuel shut off solenoid on the carburetor? If you do there will two wires going to a solenoid on the bottom/bowl of the carburetor. You need to make sure this is working properly. You may also have some debris or blockage in the main metering jet in the carburetor. Hope this offers some type of help.

I have a 7 year Craftsman 17.5 HP 42 in. lawn tractor. It starts to leak gas recently and stops frequently after running over 30-40 minutes. I can not identified where is the gas leak from but I saw gas on...


I have a Craftsman mower. Last year I had a similar problem with the mower stopping after running awhile. I noticed that the plastic gas tank was collapsing. The next time it began to stall, I immediately loosened the gas cap and it didn't stall. The vent holes in the cap had plugged up. Check this out.
I can't help you locate the fuel leak, although it sounds like the carburetor float is not stopping gas from flowing into the carburetor.

Have troy bilt riding lawn mower engine is not getting gas through carb. what is the solenoid thats attached to the carb?


That is the fuel solenoid that allows gas to get into the carburetor when it starts up. The fuel solenoid opens up when the key is turned on to allow fuel into the main jet of the carburetor.
go to www.precisionope.com, you should be able to find an Illustrated parts list on the engine.

Murray riding mower 12.5 hp briggs & stratton spitting oil & gas out of carb & muffler when trying to start


Drain oil... it is full of gasoline due to a bad float pin and rubber gromet in your carb. When your float pin and gromet fail, gas just keeps flowing into your carburetor, eventually flooding your motor with gas and oil mix.
